The Trust's main area of interest is in supporting live and performance arts, in general and in education. Applications with a Yorkshire or regional focus are favoured. Split Infinitive is a small trust with limited funds to distribute annually.
Average grants fall between £250 and £750 and are at the trustees’ discretion. They may be awarded to individuals or to organisations for specific projects. Grants for general running costs, for projects outside the UK, and charities seeking funds for their own grant disbursement, will not be eligible for support.
In terms of student applications, the Trust favours supporting performance arts courses (eg; music, drama, dance) although it may consider other arts areas. If your arts course is not strictly within these categories please check with us first to see if your course might be eligible.
Also note that repeat grants are rare and although previous recipients are welcome to re-apply, the fact of a previous grant is no guarantee of a future one.
Guideline Response Times
The trustees meet quarterly so it may be up to three months before you receive a response. Dates of trustee meetings are normally towards the end of March, June, September and December, but can vary. Please ask if you need to know an exact date, and please do specify project dates in your application.
There is no fixed cut-off date but generally any applications received up to the 10th day in the month of a meeting will definitely be able to be considered; later arrivals may be rolled over into the following quarter.
We aim to acknowledge all applications by email but this is subject to capacity. We also reserve the right to ignore unsuitable or incomplete applications.
Application decisions may be deferred if the volume is high, or for other operational reasons as the trustees think fit.
